One of the fastest growing sectors in Detroit, in both number of jobs and career potential, is the IT sector. Thousands of jobs are available, including software developers, database administrators and system analysts.
The City of Detroit’s TechHire program is designed to support Detroiters interested in entering the field by connecting them with training programs and available job opportunities. The program started in fall 2016 with an ‘Accelerator’ program, designed to help interested jobseekers to develop a platform of skills and competencies that will allow them to access further, more detailed training. Further training will begin in January 2017.
